College of Medicine Innovations Network

  1. The Innovations Award is an annual programme which aims to recognise practices and projects that exemplify the Colleges key principles: Service, Science and Healing. It is for innovative and patient-centred health care projects at the forefront of putting these principles into practice.

    This year's Winner in the Clinical category was Foxhill Medical Centre, Sheffield.
    A General Practice/Primary Care Service situated in a deprived part of Sheffield whose mission is to promote health and well-being, as well as to provide crisis intervention and disease management.

    Why they won:
    The team:

    Provide a positive, compassionate healing culture delivering integrated medical care to their patients.
    Are committed to evidence-based practice, incorporating audit/evaluation and patient feedback into their work.
    Include integrative approaches: acupuncture, medical herbalism, massage and psychotherapy.
    Deliver interventions for general well-being and for chronic diseases: Tai chi/yoga, for chronic lung disease/stress/mental health problems.
    Nurture innovations and creativity: art, creative writing, Agewell and walking groups.
    Have strong links with local community initiatives and foster an atmosphere of ownership by patients over their healthcare through their patient participation group and patient.

    Quote: Practice Manager Mandy said,
    “It’s good to know Foxhill’s efforts are not only appreciated by the patients, but also identified as innovative by the profession!”.

What's working? And how can the NHS learn from its own successes and those elsewhere in the health world?

There are many places inside and outside the NHS where the values of patient-centred service and healing are thriving. We have been actively seeking them out as we develop the College’s Innovations Network.

The College runs an annual award programme for projects that exemplify the College’s key principle of Health Creation. Videos for the winning projects and more can be viewed on this channel
